The Parker County Committee on Aging is inviting women from around the Metroplex to its third annual Bag Lady Luncheon.

The event, scheduled for Aug. 29, will feature former Miss America Dr. Shirley Gothran Barret as guest speaker.

Prior to Barret’s remarks however, attendees will be allowed to prowl for Prada, feel for Fendi and cruise for anything couture as a silent auction preview begins at 11 a.m. Hundreds of designer handbags, some new and others gently used, all available for purchase.

Lunch will follow the auction beginning at noon. The Zonta Club of Parker County is once again be providing desserts for the luncheon, President Peggy Hutton said.

"Meals-on-Wheels is one of the service projects for the Zonta Club of Parker County and this is our way of helping out and being of service," she said.

Last year, the club donated $567 to Meals-on-Wheels from the sale of desserts.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Meals-on-Wheels program as well as other programs of the Parker County Committee on Aging.

“The idea for the event came from a former board members and it took us a couple of year to work out the logistics,” said Glenda Webb, Executive Director for the Senior Center. “It was a large undertaking but now it has become an affair that is so fun and it sells out each year.”

The engagement will take place at the Parker County Sheriff’s Posse building with Jerry’s GM back as sponsor. Plains Capital Bank is the sponsor of the speaker for the event.

Donations of new and gently used designer handbags are requested for your tax-deductible donation and can be dropped of at the Senior Center located at 1225 Holland Lake Road.
